I just got my scholarship e-mail too. Got 10k for HNC, 20k for the first year in DC, and 10k for the final semester in DC. Not bad at all... that's really exciting, I might be able to not have crushin

Yeah March 6 sounds like it's far away for some reason... it's next Friday!

My Financial aid is out for DC! 46K a year...I'm losing it. GW offered me nothing, and I spent last weekend thinking I had dramatically overestimated my chances...

In! To the MAIA. 
 

No email yet I just started refreshing when I say that was a thing. In my interview they did say they try to release funding in different emails the same day as acceptances, so stay tuned. 
 

Incredibly happy. This is up there for my choices for sure.

Did you receive anything about funding?? :(

"If you have applied for financial aid, you will receive communication from the Office of Financial Aid today regarding a possible financial aid award. If you submitted the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) by February 15, your award letter will include federal aid. If your FAFSA has not yet been submitted, award information will follow within two weeks of receipt of the FAFSA. Please add saisfinaidinfo@jhu.edu as an approved sender in order to prevent your Financial Aid award letter from entering your spam or junk folder."

I just checked the portal as well— got into HNC Certificate + MA, but no update yet for the separate application just for the DC MA.

I did not receive an email, only the portal was updated. Also said financial aid info will be sent later if any is given. Edit: oh I see you already posted that section of the letter Anthony, haha.

 

Best of luck to those still refreshing!

Congrats to those accepted so far!

I'm a bit confused.... I applied to the MA with 1 year in SAIS Europe and 1 year in DC. I was accepted but my letter didn't reference aid at all. Did we have to fill out those FAFSA forms by February 15th to be considered for scholarships at all?? I totally didn't know that so I hope not.......

Did anyone apply to MA and has not received an update in their portal? My portal doesn't show anything. 

It seems like the SAIS DC decisions haven't been updated in the portal but I'm not positive. Mine isn't there yet.

If you want federal aid, you need to fill out a FAFSA. Most schools use that information to determine need-based aid as well. Fill it out now and send SAIS an email that you did it.

Okay thank you!!! I will get right on that. But does this mean I haven't been considered for any merit-based awards or scholarships at all? Or is that just for needs-based aid only?

They should be able to consider you for merit-based aid based on the other parts of your application. I had not submitted my FAFSA in December and received a Dean's Scholarship in an award letter on December 20 when early students were admitted.

The aid letter is a different letter. It will come from saisfinaidinfo@jhu.edu and does not appear in the portal.

oh I see! i was just concerned cause others on this page said that the acceptance letter actually said something about financial aid.. but I guess it might be due to different campus and programs .

Good to know, thanks! I wish I knew I had to fill out the FAFSA form, I honestly had no idea... I wish it was better advertised. Hope this won't substantially delay my financial award information or make me less likely to receive any because of my lateness.

The federal code for SAIS is 474. Good luck filling out the FAFSA.
